      Preflop I would fold without stats (according to starting hand chart), if you have stats on the opponent you should post them, because is impossible to correctly judge this hand without them. If you don't use stats you probably should for NL50

      As played I would push this flop.

      If you want to raise you should just push directly. You are committed to any flop as you raised such a large proportion of your stack preflop.

      Sometimes it can be better to just think about it this way, "If Villain calls my bet do I have more than a potsize bet left postflop?"

      If Yes; A raise is fine

      If No; It can sometimes be easier to just push directly.


      As for this hand though, I would like to know some more about villain before judging whether we can push/fold though.

      Hey brian997,

      without statistics AQ is a fold preflop unless you have some reads about opponent that he is loose enough to 3-bet him.

      If you do decide to 3-bet him then push is the way to go. 2 reasons: you will be commited on any flop and you play out of position.

      As played, push flop, c-bet is standard without stats.

      Regards,
